After years of getting in and out of the car to open and close our front driveway gate, we finally went ahead and installed a Mighty Mule 500 HD gate opener
. Since we are pretty reliable about keeping the gate shut, opening and closing the gate manually (especially during foul weather) had become a regular annoyance.
Pros of the Mighty Mule 500 HD Single Gate Opener (FM500)
Cons of the Mighty Mule 500 HD Single Gate Opener (FM500)
- The Mighy Mule Gate opener's $595.00 retail price includes only a single remote control -- if you want a keypad or use multiple cars, you will have to buy accessories.
- Without the optional FM133 Gate Operator Security Pin Lock, the gate opener's arm can easily be removed.
- If the Mighty Mule gate opener is set to automatically close, the only way to leave it open is to turn off the opener.
